Honest and candid description of her spiritual experiences in Tibet in the 1920s Sept. 30 2009
By Jerome Ryan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
David-Neel describes her spiritual experiences in Tibet, meeting lamas and visiting monasteries, practicing meditation and breathing exercises, and witnessing psychic phenomena like the control of body heat, having visions, and past life recollection. In one chapter she describes the lung-gom-pas runners who run incredible distances while in a trance, warming themselves in the snow through psychic heat.

I really liked these adventure books for their honest descriptions of an earlier, purer Tibetan culture, long before the Chinese invasion. She writes honestly and candidly about the customs and values of the people she meets, neither romanticizing nor criticizing.
